The Dutch company HoyHoy (from what I can interpret using Google Translate) compares prices on home, travel, car and health insurance (like Oz’s cute Meerkat version). Their commercials all feature a sloth named Aart! (Click here for the whole list of commercials on YouTube.)
In this one, Aart has saved some money, but then blown it all on some sloth bitches he met on Sloth Tindr…
Looks like Father Slothmas didn’t fall asleep on the job after all. Had a wonderful day, got some wonderful gifts and ate lots of food. Think I need to pull a sloth and take a month to digest my food now. Good night! Merry Christmas!

We got a new television this week because the old one (which wasn’t actually that old, only like 2 years) was playing up and we got a refund on it. The boy is currently playing with it and trying to set it all up. Looks good! New levels of laziness await!
Also, just an update… This is like the fourth time I’ve been made to watch the new Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer…

It’s December! And that means it’s time to get onto your Chrissy shopping if you haven’t yet. Last year I posted the Ultimate Sloth Gift Guide, but each year more weird and wonderful sloth-related products and experiences seem to come into existence, so here’s my top-ten pick for 2014.
Number 10: Sloth Tops
BelovedShirts.com has you completely covered on this front… literally. This Majestic Sloth top is one of my favs.
Number 9: Sloth Wall Calendar for 2015
Lucy Cooke’s noble quest to make sloths part of everyone’s lives takes us into the future with her Hanging With Sloths calendar for 2015. The added bonus of seeing baby sloths on your wall all year round.
Number 8: Sloth Art
Etsy delivers the goods on this one. This beautiful sloth watercolour is absolutely fabulous.
Number 7: Sloth Hat
When you’re lazing around (or not?) this totally cute sloth hat is ideal for keep those little slothy ears warm.
Number 6: Sloth Clocks
Sloths have a habit of being late! Nothing wrong with that, but if you need to know the time and want to do it in lazy style, this funky vintage sloth clock (slock? cloth?) will set you right.
Number 5: Sloth Onesie
For the intense sloth lover, you can’t go past this all-over sloth onesie from Kigurumi. Ideal for lounging, lazing, and sleeping… a sloth’s favourite activities.

Or, if you want some finger bling, the sloth wrap-around ring is hard to beat.
Number 3: Sloth Toy
Number 2: Meet the Sloths Series
Chill out one afternoon (or many) and have a marathon of Meet the Sloths. The amount of gasping, Aww exclaiming and heart-melting you will experience is like no other.
Number 1: Adopt a Sloth
Get the real deal through the World Wildlife Fund. You won’t get to take a sloth home, but you will be contributing to the conservation and maintenance of sloths everywhere, so that they can be around to enjoy for generations to come.
Happy birthday to my gorgeous sister! 😀 Here’s a sloth just for you. Love ya. xx
It was great going out for dinner with my good friend last night. We talked for hours, shared a bottle of wine, and just had a really fantastic catch-up. Then I got home late and my sloths were all waiting for me in the bedroom so I just had to put a movie on for them. We watched How to Train Your Dragon 2, which I’d seen when it was in cinemas, but was just as good on small screen. Seriously, if you’ve never seen the first one, you NEED to get on it. My favourite animated film of all time. That’s right, ahead of all Disney films even.

Started reading JKR’s pseudonym novel (under Robert Galbraith) The Cuckoo’s Calling today. Don’t normally go for crime stories but in this case I can make an exception HP Trolley Witch with Chocolate Sloths! By S. Watercolour.
This week was the 13th anniversary of 9/11. Just thought it was worth a post. I didn’t know anyone involved in the tragedy that unfolded on that fateful day, but nevertheless still feel for all people affected by terrorism throughout the world. Right now in Oz there is a “high” terrorism risk, and whilst I’m not worried by that at this point in time, one still questions why people do the things they do.
World peace might happen one day! I hope I’m still around to see it.
